The father of toddler, Amari Whippy, who was attacked by a pack of dogs, is calling on authorities to seriously look into his daughter’s case.

Billy Singh was at work in Suva when he heard of the horrific incident that left his two-year-old with deep bite marks on her body, and part of her ear bitten off on Friday morning.

Little Amari was playing inside their compound at their home in Narewa, Nadi, when a pack of about eight dogs began to congregate in the compound.

In a matter of seconds, according to Amari’s mother,Lydia Whippy, the dogs had ripped off the toddler’s diaper, her T-shirt and left deep bites on her body.

Mr Singh, who watched his daughter on her hospital bed in Lautoka, said the incident could have happened to any child.

Hence, something should be seriously done. Amari was recovering well after successful surgery the night before.

“I just couldn’t wait to come and see my daughter. I am glad that she is okay and better now,” he said.

“Her wounds have been cleaned from any bacteria and have been left open. They will treat her again today and tomorrow and on Tuesday they will stitch her wounds.

“I think the issue about these wild dogs should be seriously considered because it can happen again to my children or the children living around that area,” he added.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the West team was working on the issue.
